The Full Swing contest took place in Kobe 2 weeks ago. Kazuki Kawanishi made sure we are not missing any highlights. Thanks for the great video! Watch out for Shinichi Kiba who won the contest! Click here for the results.
Remember Matthieu's nohanded whiplash in Cologne last year? In the meantime he took things to the next level and does some kind of nohanded gturn whiplash. Can you imagine how much practice it must take? Respect!
On the weekend there was a big contest at the Phil Bike Expo in Manilla. The organizers invited Matthias and Viki to judge the national flatland contest. Renz Viaje won so we can probably call him the Philippine Flatland Champion! Congratulations!

The Flatland Fanactics contest is back! After a break the 4th edition is going to take place on November 7 in Stadthagen, Germany. The contest will start in the afternoon and there will be a master and pro class. As usual you can expect a good wood floor and a little after party. Check the event page and facebook for more updates and news: Flatland Fanatics 4
There is a always a spot - you just need to find it! Our friend JF is an expert when it comes to finding spots so it's not surprising to see him riding somewhere in the forest in a park near Quebec. Enjoy some solid combos from the woods!
Yeah! Martti is back on the contest floor with all those new stem styles. Remember the big retirement from 2011? .. ha! Forget it .. of course he won the UK Flatland Championships last weekend. Congratulations! Above is footage of him and Matthias, unfortunately they are quite far from the lens. Here is some more footage of Martti.

DUB's RealCitySpin in Montreal was one of the biggest contests of the year with riders from around 16 countries making the trip. Today we have a nice highlight video showing some of that magic! Lots of good moments, great riding, and with some commentary by Martti - click play!
During the Paris 'car-free' day, parisian locals organized the second edition of Parisiana Jam on September 27th at the famous Opera spot. Congratulations to SeongHoon Lie on the first place! We assume it was the best trick contest of the jam.
Unless you just started riding you probably heard of KGB or even rode one of their frames. It was the company of Viki Gomez and Martti Kuoppa. About 6 years ago they stopped that project and followed seperate paths. After a few suspicious facebook posts in the last couple of days it's now official: KGB is back with a new frame called Soul Rider. It makes you wonder what happened to Orbea (Viki) and Jungle Rider (Martti)? However, the new frame looks nice and clean. It will probably take a little while before it gets released.
